On the st louis review show from pulpmx, they were talking about naming the triple crown races something other than “main 1, 2 & 3.” Steve wants to call them heats. Why not call them moto 1, 2, & 3?

Calling them heats is dumb IMO bc you already have established what a "heat" is in the other rounds. Calling them Main Events is also really dumb. I say call them Motos like in motocross, but I feel like that is why they won't unfortunately.

How bout just Race 1, Race 2, and Race 3? Still way better then calling them Main Events IMO.

There are 3 main events, a qualifier and a last chance race.

Motos are for outdoor motocross races, they will need to be called SUPER-motos!

Like Matthes was saying.... at Atlanta, Ralph was like "Justin Brayton gets his first ever win in a main; though we know this doesn't count in the record books"... Soooo, he won a main event but doesn't get credit in the history books for winning a main event?? Clearly something must be changed about this.

I touched on that in one of the threads. Calling them main events makes absolutely no sense. We follow the sport and get the changes but imagine the casual viewer hearing "Justin Brayton just won his first ever main event but as we all know it won't be credited as a main event win in the record books". Totally confusing.

I then asked the following question.

If they're not credited as main event wins (which they shouldn't and aren't) what are they credited as in the record books? Are they credited as heat wins? Semi wins? They have to be scored as something. The broadcast team gives out stats to the viewers all the time. Everything from main event starts to LCQ wins.

I'm guessing there's now a new category in the record books called Monster Energy Triple Crown "Main Event" Wins.

They should just call them motos. Musquin in one of his podium interviews refered to them as that. He was describing his night and said in the first moto....but then I think corrected himself and said main.

Call them motos. Easy to explain. Lowest score after all 3 motos is credited with the overall win. Or at the very least race 1, race 2 and race 3.

Feld, just call them motos. The sport was born from motocross so stop treating that as competition.

They need to do a new format for the triple crown. I like it though. I hated it at first.

Call them "Stages"

Just like the Tour de France.

They all count, winning a stage is great but the overall is what matters.

You can't call them Heats or Motos because we already have those names in our sport.

That's what I was thinking. It's not the triple race, the triple moto or the triple main. It's the god damn triple crown. They are crowns

So when does the main happen?

It's fine as is. There are no nets for the naming of this.

Heats, all Triple Crowns, 3x ten.
